I'm trying to understand the uses of amorphous alloys compared to crystalline alloys. I read that using controlled expansion alloys is popular for the aerospace industry due to their conductivity http://www.nealloys.com/industries-served-aircraft-aerospace.php but how do they compare in strength and brittleness? When casting these metals, would different cooling techniques need to be used to protect the strength of the metal?
